Tambuti Lodge pays great respect to the local crafts, particularly the finely carved woodwork, both in the form of furnishings and carved railings, newels and balustrading in the common entertaining areas. The gardens are currently being redesigned to accommodate flora more appropriate to the climate. This seems to be disturbing some of the reptile life as there are many signs alerting guests to the presence of local snakes. Sadly I saw none. Our very spacious room with separate antique style bathroom was airy, light and comfortable. The verandah was beautifully positioned to give the best view of the garden foreground and the river in the background. The dinner served on the verandah next to the main reception area was simple , substantial and very tasty. Pepper soup is highly recommended. Breakfast in the bar at the bottom of the garden adjacent to the river was sumptuous and very tasty. This is a very good value for money establishment in a quiet part of the rather zany town of Rundu. As a previous reviewer has said, "an oasis".

- Tambuti Lodge has 8 clean whitewashed en-suite chalets perched above the Okavango River 50m from the floodplain and a traditional African restaurant. Never flooded and easy access, conveniently located on a small road leading down to the river from the center of Rundu town. The ideal stop before heading to the deeper Kavango and Caprivi. ... more less
